CAPE TOWN – The National Union of Metalworkers South Africa (Numsa) has confirmed it went ahead with its congress in contempt of a court order because it believes the Labour Court was wrong and they are right.

An earlier Labour Court ruling shut the door on an appeal against an earlier interdict.

Speaking to the media for the first time since the national congress that descended into chaos, Numsa’s president Andrew Chirwa cast aspersions about the objectivity of Judge Graham Moshoana.
